We have been going through the book of Acts and Ephesians looking how we can can be changed and help effect change in out community through Christ's example. Our pastor Shaun is a great teacher and has a gift how applying God's word into real life situations and for being a huge encourager in a place that can be very oppressive and dangerous at times.
Josh and Cody have been driving the big ABC bus full of the college students to church every Sunday. Their ministry is really starting to thrive and they have begun to pick up some people from the village near by as well. Two of the guys who have been coming have started their own discipleship group in the village. It is such a blessing to hear things that that and seeing people growing in out church!
I have been serving in the children's ministry teaching in the 7-11 year olds. The kids are super cute and I love the diversity in the group. We are totally blessed to have found a church here that is helping us to be stretched and grow. We are looking forward to the Christmas Outreach we are going to have again this year. People are invites from all over Lilongwe who are not going to have nice Christmas Dinner and we feed them, play games and just celebrate the true meaning of Christmas!

This building is going to be the cafeteria for the Academy School. Josh and the workers are putting up huge trusses so that the roofs can be thatched with hay. It is hard work without cranes and large equipment, but these amazing guys get it done somehow! Check out these amazing pictures!
Yes, Amy and I decided they are officially crazy and take no responsibility for their adventures! :)

Encima is a maize mush kind of thing that is the staple food here in Africa. They always tease and say they are not full or you did not feed them if your meal does not include Encima! They love it! I have had it many times and it is really not bad!
Enjoy the pictures!
